Two lovely new websites (or website updates) appeared on my radar this last week that I wanted to note here for future front-end inspiration.
Vitaly Friedman’s Smart Interface Patterns has had some lovely animation and component work from Clearleft alumni Cassie Evans and Trys Mudford. Given Vitaly’s obsession with creating accessible, user-friendly components and the collaborators he has on board, I expect this site to be choc-full of well crafted nuggets for reference! It looks ace, too.
I noted a while ago that the W3C had a new Design System, and now the W3C has a new website in beta too. I imagine it might use components from that Design System alongside other carefully-considered patterns of markup, style and behaviour.
Nice job on these sites, to all concerned!
Here’s a nice demo page for Source Serif 4 which illustrates its versatility.
Source Serif is an open-source typeface for setting text in many sizes, weights, and languages. The design of Source Serif represents a contemporary interpretation of the transitional typefaces of Pierre-Simon Fournier. Additionally, Source Serif has been conceived as a friendly companion to Paul D. Hunt’s Source Sans.
Definite “personal website goals” here in Robb’s beautiful online portfolio and blog.
From interaction design to scaleable design systems, single-page apps to something more experimental with WebGL. I help awesome people to build ambitious yet accessible web projects - the wilder, the better.
A fantastic so-called “Scroll Story” from Robin Rendle. In his own words it’s “an elaborate blog post where I rant about a thing” however given the beautiful typography, layout and illustrations on show I think he’s selling it a little short!
I’m Jack McDade and I’m tired of boring websites.
Here’s a beautiful, magazine style website design for digital publication Bustle. The typography, use of whitespace, responsive layout, menu pattern, colour palette and imagery are all on point!
I love Cassie Evans’s new website design! It’s so full of personality while loaded with technical goodies too. Amazing work!
Some simple but inspiring work here from Seattle-based web developer Katherine Kato. I really like the use of space, the typography, the colour palette and the use of CSS grid for layout.
Over 8,400 NASA Apollo moon mission photos, online, in high-resolution.
Bram Stein, a software architect at Adobe, wrote the book on Webfonts, so it’s no surprise that his own website showcases some pretty beautiful typography.
I was introduced to this smile-inducing website by Val Head’s An Event Apart Talk “Building more expressive projects”.
